Microsoft To Hold Bethesda Showcase Soon: Date, Time, Games, Elder Scrolls, Starfield, Leaks, News and Everything You Need To Know

Microsoft shocked the world back in 2020 when they made the surprising purchase of Bethesda.

The renowned publisher is perhaps best noted for their titles such as Elder Scrolls and DOOM but has multiple projects in the works.

Now, there could be a brand new event held by Microsoft next month where we could see some of the developer's games showcased for the very first time.

Here's all we know! 

Report

Phill Spencer, head of Xbox, recently spoke on the Xbox podcast and touched on an ample amount of topics, including the future of Xbox and Bethesda.

Spencer noted the following: 

I’m excited about 2021 and Bethesda is an important part of that

2021 is when we’ll get final approval. I feel really good about that: everything is on track. We’ll start then really getting to some of the planning that we can do with them. Right now we’re really hands-off with them as they continue to do the work that they’re doing, because we don’t own them yet.

These comments by Spencer are also fueled by claims from Jeff Grubb, a games journalist who noted the following on his new podcast which can be viewed here: 

I think this is one of the milestones for Microsoft before E3, where once the deal closes they will talk about it in a big way

I don’t know if it will be a full, Direct-style event, but they will make note about it and they will talk about it extensively, explain what it means for everybody and talk about the immediate future of both companies becoming one. So yeah, expect that to happen sometime in mid-March

So, it appears that they are gearing up to hold some sort of event where Bethesda is the main star; and there are an ample amount of games that fans want to see talked about if this show eventually happens. 

 

Games

Bethesda is working on a ton of games right now, but some of the more notable ones that fans are hoping get announced or even mentioned this year are Starfield and the new Elder Scrolls.

It has now been nine years since Skyrim released, and little is known about the next Elder Scrolls title.

 

 

Leaks, News and Rumors

As of now, we do not know when this event is going to take place or what they are going to mention during the showcasing.

We will be sure to update you with any information we hear in the coming weeks!
